A lot has been going on there the last couple of days, apparently




Navalny's office in Moscow raided by the police again, on the day when he hosts his weekly Q/A on YouTube. All equipment used to broadcast is expected to be taken away, his spokesperson says:

It’s already well-established that he’s a vindictive SOB.

19. I'm concerned that he'll start coming after people like us.

Bill Barr DID single out the Resistance in his speech to the Federalist Society. Don’t forget that. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s already got a few plans in place, just in case.

That’s why we HAVE TO win this. We HAVE TO. You know that old saying about - “... like your life depends on it”? Yeah. That one.

“Vote like your life depends on it. Because it DOES.” Heck, people with health care issues already understand this, clearly.

Don't know if that's legal after resigning, but it seems like the kind of thing the GOP would try.

I mean he takes out all other opposition, clamps down on most of the dissent in Russia. I realize some opposition is normal, like here before the GOP lost their damned minds.

10. These are good questions. I swear, we're all forced to play the proverbial three-dimensional chess.

But I think it’s a good thing. I think we all should be thinking this through, even to extremes. Because that’s what Putin does. And trump as well. Their next move will ALWAYS be “hmmm, what else could I get away with? How far can I push this? What else can I get?”

With these bastards, it’s never enough. They have to dominate. They have to assert the alpha. They have to BE the Alpha. And as it’s said about all kinds of climbs up to the top, it’s not merely about getting to the top. Once you get there, you have to make sure you’re able to stay there.

unfortunately, I'd bet on the russkis and lots of neural-network/AI gaming software.

And trumpf is just a pwned pawn.
